Thomas Blampied has released a new book, Call of the Northland. This book talks about the former Ontario Northlander passenger train and the author's journey on it.
The Ontario Northlander was a passenger train that ran from Toronto, ON to Cochrane, ON by the Ontario Northland Railway. The train was cancelled by the provincial government and the last train ran on September 28, 2012.
I personally have no experience with the Ontario Northland Railway, other than seeing ONR 2105 once when it visited Saint John in March 2005.

I think it's great that Thomas has written this book documenting the Northlander. Events and trains like these need to be documented.
